Origins of surname

This name has been associated with Wales in the past 300 years or so, but it is of much older English origin, ultimately derived from the Germanic warrior Hrodberht, meaning ‘renowned fame’. The name developed separately in France as Robert, which was then also absorbed into English. There are variants as surnames in British records as early as the 13th century.

Early records

There is an isolated baptism record for Elizabeth, daughter of Thomas and Sara Hopkins, in St Helier in 1742; and a marriage of Maurice Uphill Hopkins and Anne Pryor Bean, both of Somerset in St Saviour in 1779, but it was not until the 1870s that a family became established - see tree below
